Lausanne, Switzerland, (10 February 2023): We are deeply saddened by the impact of the devastating earthquake in Türkiye and Syria. Our thoughts remain with all those affected by this tragic event. We are in close contact with our local team, working with them to support the wellbeing of our people in the region. All our colleagues in the affected area have been reported as safe.
To help affected communities, which are suffering from a lack of electricity, we are supplying generators, especially for the rescue teams in night shifts, hospitals, and permanent shelters. This is in addition to local employee activities to support those most affected, including blood donation drives and an employee voluntary donation campaign for urgently needed items. These activities are done in partnership with local non-profit organisations.
